Gentoo Linux on HP/Compaq nx7400 Core 2 Duo Laptop - Update (suspend to ram working now)

An update to my initial article on installing Gentoo on my nx7400 laptop:

I've switched to kernel 2.6.21-gentoo (latest gentoo-sources available currently with ~amd64), and to the latest versions of ipw3945, alsa and xorg, and suspend to ram works fine now. (the screen would not switch on again with vanilla kernel 2.6.19)

Hibernation (suspend to disk) seems to work as well, apart from the fact that the screen resolution is not restored correctly, but for now I'm happy with suspend-to-ram.
